2019 Solo Flights Line-up

Dr. Glas, a new one-person play by Jeffrey Hatcher, based on the classic Scandinavian mystery novel “Doktor Glas” by Hjalmer Söderberg and translated from Swedish by David Barrett, is the chilling, yet witty, love story of a 19th-century physician grappling with the decision of a lifetime. As told in first person account, the Doctor (Daniel Gerroll) finds himself madly in love with an unhappily married patient, who presses to see him regularly about her miserable state—pitting his passion against his morality. Ultimately, Dr. Glas is seduced into helping her in any way he can, even if it means murder.

 

Dr. Glas will be directed by two time Obie Award winner Lisa Peterson.

What We Leave Behind, with book, music, and lyrics by Jenny Giering and Sean Barry, is a courageous one-woman musical exploring what it means to live a life reshaped by illness. This story in two lives, follows a woman from her diagnosis of breast cancer, through treatment, and the onset of a mysterious new condition that robs her of her ability to function fully as a wife, mother and artist. Her journey is juxtaposed with the time before her struggles began, when life was full of daring and passion—when she and her husband together embarked on a relationship with another woman. The musical, with abundant heart and humor, acknowledges the loss that comes from serious illness, while declaring that one’s existence can still be alive with wonder and hope—if we are brave enough to embrace it. 

 

What We Leave Behind will be directed by Tracy Brigden.

In Courtney Baron‘s When It’s You, Ginnifer Riggan has a fine life, but that’s it, just fine.  Unlucky in love and recently returned to her hometown after the death of her mother, an act of violence committed by an old boyfriend forces Ginnifer to ask:  How are we all connected?  who are we responsible for? and How is it possible to move forward?  This extremely personal, deeply moving, and often humorous story, is about the nature of loneliness, who we become in shifting times, and the courage of the human spirit to go on.

 

When It’s You will be directed by Kent Nicholson.
